      FinTech, Innovation and the growing digitisation of Asset Management mean technology skills are becoming more important to firms There is pressure in the industry from regulation and changing customer expectations in addition career paths are changing and becoming less predictable Automation and AI will make traditional roles redundant and up to 40% of the workforce will require retraining in the next 5-10 years There is over £3bn of unspent apprenticeship levy funds which are set to be returned to the Treasury if they remain unspent This money can be used to help meet these challenges by retraining existing staff, up-skilling new joiners and re-skilling returners after career breaks There are rules around how the levy can and can’t be spent Companies need to have in place an effective strategy to ensure that not only the rules are met so that the funds can be recovered, but that the needs of the individual and the wider business benefit are met

      The use of ESG data in the Investment Management industry has come a long way. It is now one of the main components in many investment decisions as well as for the engagement with the companies invested in through its investment portfolios.
      High profile discussions, debate and activism around the impact of global warming on our environment has brought the importance and power of ESG investing even more to the forefront. With this comes an extraordinary paradigm shift in which the driver behind environmental change is not government but the investor (with the investment industry representing the investor).
      A fast growing sector
      The industry is ramping up its promotion of ESG data as a meaningful input to generating financial returns for our investors and, by default, asking the investor to also rely on that data in the reporting and disclosures to them. Yet, many consumers of data (including investment decision makers) within the investment management industry are unaware of the importance a good data governance framework provides in delivering reliable, accurate and fit-for-purpose inputs across investment and operational processes.
      This awareness gap is exacerbated for ESG data because it is less evolved than, say, capital market data sources (i.e. accounting data, securities attributes, pricing, volatility measures, etc.) and is generally more subjective or proprietary in form.
      The rate of adoption of ESG data across the industry without due consideration for its nature, how and when it is derived, what methodologies might be used to produce it, and how it will be used within a firms’ investment process and disclosures, has the potential to create unintended risks for investment firms.
      It should therefore be afforded the same level of governance rigour given to other major inputs to the investment process and accompanying services. Specifically, any firm producing its own proprietary ESG scores and frameworks needs to exhibit appropriate transparency and oversight to avoid the reality or perception of gaming scores for strategies with higher fees.
      A new framework
      The recently published paper ESG Data Integration: Important considerations for Investment and Wealth firms creates some insight in not only the associated risk of the use of ESG data but equally some guidance as to how an ESG data governance framework can be set up.
      We can only hope that such a governance framework gets the equal attention as the good that is aimed to be achieved with the use of ESG data in investment decision and the engagement with companies invested in. If good ESG data governance is not achieved then all the good intention to change the world for the better might end up with very disillusioned investors.
